The Return of Frank Graben, by Van Holt
Special pre-release pricing! Regularly $7.99!

THE RETURN OF FRANK GRABEN

Frank Graben rode into the remote mountain-walled basin looking for peace and quiet. Whitey Barlow, the cattle baron who had taken over the basin, told him to get out. The old tyrant sent one of his riders to warn everyone in the small isolate town of Hackamore to sell the stranger nothing and do no business of any kind with him.

Feral Little Gods, by Cathy Rosoff
Ten year-old Sascha is a brilliant beautiful child of privilege. His best friend is blue-blooded Christian, whose bond with him is unusually intense, often existing within an intensely vivid shared fantasy world.

Waking Up Dead (River Sanctuaries), by Zabe Truesdell

"You know, I thought when I died.... I really thought at the time that was the end of my goodbyes. Either the Good Book was right and I was headed to a place of endless happiness, or it was complete rubbish and I would just cease to be. Either way I was prepared. But this... after all this time I am still not prepared for this."

Thomas Salazar didn't know what to expect when he died, but it
certainly wasn't Jack Macintyre. Yet here he was, dead, with Jack
standing there offering him a job.

In a world where reality can
respond to your every thought, a job that offers endless surprises can
be enticing. Leaving life behind, however, ...
